Odin and Fenrir by Dreoilin Odin and Fenrir by Dreoilin
Another ca.org weekly challenge image- from the awesome new Illustration of the Week this time! The theme for this one was Ragnarok, and I chose to do Odin vs. Fenrir.

Should be a little string/ribbon around Fenrir's his neck, not a big chain. (Nevertheless adding something of that variety was a great touch!) AWESOME and very Rackham-like!

I think the big metal chain is the one Fenrir originally broke from, cause on Ragnarok the thread now binding him shall break. I think

Fair enough; I figured the chain could be a remnant of one of the other two fetters. But on the other hand I do believe this is supposed to be an illustration from Ragnarok. It is *the battle* between Othin and Fenrir, after all. :)

It's gorgeous! The horse has eight legs, is that part of the folklore?

Yes. Sleipnir was the offspring of Loki and Svathilfari, a giant's stallion (Loki had turned himself into a mare at the time...). The resulting offspring had eight legs.

Can you make a Thor vs Jormungandr one just like this? I want to get them both put on my body, I love this and want the other to have the same artist and look. I would be very grateful!
